I would only post my question if I was in doubt - of course, I did search the forums.
- The official mongodb documentation on installing mentions M1 Max 0 times, and does not even mention rosetta.
- I don’t understand completely what Rosetta is, or why I even need it. I just wan’t a mongodb instance running locally.
- I don’t find anything when searching for M1 Max on this forum → and I have no idea if the M1 Max and M1 are “identical” in terms of this matter.
Finally, the only thing I missed was installing rosetta and restart the computer.
Install rosetta with
softwareupdate --install-rosetta in the terminal, and restart the computer after following the steps described here.
